sis Darline, I have a similar story of a turkey. When I was a small kid mom had it tied to a tree, she later killed it and served it on Thanksgiven, my sister and I never ate one piece of it. Two weeks ago I visited my daughter in Oroville Ca. As we were driving into the drive way, we saw 12 turkeys walking on the side of the dirt road. In the morning at around 3 am, I heard a noice outside, and saw a deer eating some of the vegetables. My son-in-law had already killed a deer and wanted to give me some jerkey and I didn't want any.
What is funny is that later he cooked pork spareribs and I sure ate that. It's funny how I think. I don't like to see the animal alive and then killed. But I buy the very same food prepared already at the store.
---Mark_V. on 10/14/12

Mark V I didn't realize why seeing an animal killed for meat didn't bother me until what you said about seeing cows killed. I remember when I was a young child seeing Grandma wring a chickens head off by hand and also I've been a deer hunter,I killed it with one shot though so no suffering,and we field dress our deer by cleaning the insides out as soon as possible after killing,I wasn't strong enough to do it but I watched it done many times. I guess there's just a little bit country girl in me because none of that stuff bothers me. Its all part of living off nature and setting aside food for the family.
---Darlene_1 on 10/13/12

Sister Shira, If I witnessed what you have with the chickens, I probably would not eat another chicken. Concerning animals, if I saw the killing of cows everyday, I would not eat beef. I believe we close our minds on that part of the food, because that food is prepared for us already. Jesus said concering foods,
"So He said to them, Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods? And He said, What come out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceeds evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications etc." refering to you know who.
---Mark_V. on 10/9/12

I think this would fall under the "eating food sacrificed to other gods" category. Scripture has already shown us that we don't have to worry about eating those foods.

Well, as long as the Chicken itself wasn't facing Mecca and praying.

jed had chickens that were worse than mine. I had one hen they were after to run and jump in my arms. she hid during the day and when I called her she came to me for food and water. even the female chickens would peck her to death. it just seems a bad way to go. my hen lived in a large cage so the ruthless ones wouldn't bother her. a hawk did try to get her that day and I ran out in the dew in socks and grabbed her away from the hawk. the hawk act like he was fixing to attack me but when he saw me acting like a crazy woman he flew away. also a possum got into the hen house at night and ran them down and they all just sat where they landed til morning. a couple of them landed in a fire ant bed. my poor hens didn't know to run away from them.
---shira4368 on 10/3/12

markv, its all good here. I have been attacked here the same as you but I told myself I would not get caught up with kathr. it happened once. some on here are lions with their claws reaching to scratch everything someone says. you have given good answers here and I agree with many of them. we hear a lot of negativity here concerning demonination represents my faith so it won't be any problem knowing what I believe. most non denominational churches are generic and believe all doctrine. I could never go to one of these and know what their doctrine is. God bless markv
---shira4368 on 10/3/12

Shira, that was a wild story you have on the chickens. By the way, thanks for supporting me on many occasions. Love and peace I leave you.
---Mark_V. on 10/3/12

Shira, I too have witnessed roosters gang-raping a hen. I have seen it several times. It's what they do. If there is a puddle nearby, they will drag her over to it and one rooster will hold her head under the water while the others go at it. The hen is usually drowned or close to dead when they are through.
---Jed on 10/3/12

once we had 1 chicken and my husband bought two more so the chicken wouldn,t be lonely. we ended up with more roosters and they would gang up on one hen and when they got thru with her she was dead. chickens are so mean I hate I don't eat them either. they would get on my car and carport and ruin them.. even laying eggs on my car. I conclude that I don't go to kfc.
---shira4368 on 10/3/12

Once there was a little chicken
getting picked-on by another hen
higher in the barnyard pecking order,
and that little clucker
got to be quite a squawker.
But what if that picky hen
got caught by a hawk?
Would this make things better??
Or, might that little clucker
now get picked-on harder
by the one once pecking
the squawker's hawk-caught picker???
So, now I can see, that a
person or problem bothering me
could be doing me a favor
by getting in the way of

Trey, I love KFC chicken and Pollo Loco. I eat it about once every two months. KFC is too rich with fat. I don't believe many go around checking what businesses are Christian or not. People are way too busy with thier lives but I understand what Jed is saying about running a business. There was a special on TV showing that almost 98% percent of things we have at home come from overseas. Mostly from China. And China is not Christian. Most of the other countries have very few Christians. If we can buy from a Christian business it would be great to support them. They have long distance services and other businesses.
---Mark_V. on 10/1/12

Some KFC restaurants buy chicken from Halal, or Kosher plants depending on what neighborhood they serve. Feel free to not support any business that you believe opposes your Christian beliefs. Please consider the following verses - that concern the obligation of the stronger and weaker brother to each other.
Romans 14:21, 1Corinthians chapter 8.

\\I incorperate Christian principles and biblical values\\

Do tell us what Christian principles and Biblical values you incorporate into your business.

I'm all ears.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Steveng: Wrong. The Christians I have known who ran businesses around here all had horrible reputations in the community. They embarrassed me to attend the same church.

That does not make the company Christian, per se.

What if they have non-Christians working for them?

I am a Christian business owner and I consider my business to be a Christian business because I incorperate Christian principles and biblical values into my business practices. When customers use our services, they are supporting my family. I would rather support other businesses that incorperate Christian values into their business practice rather than Islamic practices.

These are the end times where love have waxed cold. If all businesses became secular, how would you survive? How would you take care of your family? Many of the things you own or use are from companies that have no love in them nor the people in them. The bible states to give preference to our brother and sister christians. If we must, we can patronize unchristian businesses in order to take care of ourselves and our families. Is the business you work for a christian business? If not, why are you working there? So, therefore, do your business with anyone that you need the product or services, but give preference to christian businesses (if one can still find them).
---Steveng on 9/27/12

This is painfully clear!

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you, That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?
Do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others?
Do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

You peeps all talk about Bible verses that have nothing to do with the "meat" of the matter. KFC was started by someone who did not love Jesus (like ray kroc satanist founder of mc d's) and it does not take a genius to figure this out...e.g. also the amount of suffering and harm that such companies inflict on animals and human beings is monumental, these are the real issues you need to deal with...and I do not need to quote any scripture about this, BECAUSE THE WHOLE BIBLE SUPPORTS BEING KIND TO HUMANS AND ANIMALS (when taken AS A WHOLE)
---concerned_Christian on 9/25/12

Here is something for you all to google, as you quote scripture out of context (and even added to and taken away from). Simply GOOGLE the following "was KFC founder a mason" and realize that along with other mystery schools adherents like dave thomas, ray kroc, etc. that these people only got ahead in world business by the god of this world. Then talk about the REAL reason why you should not support their business. PERIOD!

Steveng, verily, verily I say on to you, well said!

Rom_14:20 For meat destroy not the work of God.
All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God, and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

I don't think I've eaten at a KFC for at least a decade, not because I'm boycotting it, but because there is not one convenient.

However, one thing about the boycotts of big corporations: they affect only the minimum wage grunts at the bottom of the pyramid.

Romans 14 -

v1 Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions

v2 One person has faith that he may eat KFC, but he who is weak eats Chik-fil-A only

v3 The one who eats KFC is not to regard with contempt the one who eats Chil-fil-A only, and the one does not eat KFC is is not to judge the one who does.

v4 Who are you to judge the servant of another?

v5 Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind

Jed: I used to teach in a very Jewish neighborhood of Philadelphia where there were some kosher delis and butcher shops. Not sure about other types of restaurants, but a good hoagie from any deli is better than any fried chicken.

As for eating KFC, I hardly eat there, because I'm not supposed to have fried food. Maybe once every three months I cheat. As for Chik-Fil-A, the only thing I can eat there is the grilled chicken, because they use confectioner's sugar in their coating for their fried stuff, and I get sick every time I eat it. That's why their chicken is so addictive.
---Trish on 9/24/12

oh, good grief!

KFC, Taco Bell and a number of chain diners are all owned by the Pepsi conglomerate! (and I would not be surprised if a big chunk of that was owned by Tyson's!)

if you have to kill a couple hundred million chickens a year, it is not going to be pretty, it is going to be messy and fast.

personally i like their chicken with its wee addictive ingredients......

I find it interesting that some just ignore what the Bible says about food and make a mountain out of a mole hill. Read all of 1 Corinthians 10 if you don't believe what people have shared with you about it,then you will have God's view of food. Why worry about something that means nothing to a Christian because we don't believe any of what the Muslim religion teaches except about the Prophets which are taught about in both religions. How can anything which doesn't exist to Christians hold any power over their walk with God through Jesus Christ. As several have said once food is sanctified by prayer in Jesus Name it is clean and good to eat. Like all things in a Christians life,all you must do is pray in Jesus Name and give it all to God.

Trish, I see your point about Paul and the Corinthians eating food that had been offered to idols. I don't think it is necessarily wrong to eat at KFC and I certainly understand your Christian friends who live in Muslim have no choice. All I'm saying is, here in the U.S. where we have so many choices, I'd rather eat at and support with my money a Christian owned restaurant like Chik-fil-A or Burger King rather than a Muslim company. If they are not Muslims then they are sell outs for catering to Muslims and offering their food to Allah just to make a buck. On another note, I don't know of any restaurants that serve Kosher food, do you?
---Jed on 9/24/12

I was about to comment on this blog, and then noticed Trish had said everything I had wanted to say, and quite eloquently too!

Even if it WAS true that all KFC meat was halal, so what? Paul said there was no problem eating meat sacrificed to idols - UNLESS your faith is weak. Paradoxically enough, those yelling the loudest about this issue (and others like it) are the same ones who claim to have the greatest faith, and therefore should have the LEAST problem with it.

If you clutch your cross to ward yourself from the evil eye whenever a black cat crosses your path, by all means, worry about this. But if your faith is truly in Christ who conquers all things, petty thigns like this should not even be a blip on your radar.

It's interesting how everyone finds it horrible to eat the halal food here in the U.S. but the Christians living in Muslim countries who have no choice are just stuck dishonoring God with their eating? Ridiculous!!!!!

I know two people personally living in Muslim countries who eat halal food and their walk with the Lord is fine.
---Trish on 9/24/12

I think most of you have missed the point. No Jew - Jews being a minority - insists that unless non-Jewish commercial enterprises follow Jewish food law then they won't eat there. They just don't eat there.

Muslims, however, a minority too, do push their religious eating laws on us all.

You Christian junk food eaters should boycott KFC because they've surrendered to a heathen religious group for PROFIT.

Of course Islamic food is just food. The problem is it is a single thread of a process to Islamicize the West. In AD711 they did it by force. Now they do it by subterfuge.
---Marc on 9/24/12


I've done a bit of research.

KFC in the UK is experimenting with halal menus in SOME regions of the UK where there are large mahometan communities.

There is a similar experiment with ONE halal KFC outlet in New York, though there are wide spread rumors they exist elsewhere in the USA.

As for the rest, KFC is NOT owned by mahometans.

And for what it's worth, neither halal nor kosher meats are "offered" to any deity at all.

Finally, in Arab culture, be they Christians or mahmetans, it's a grave breach of etiquette not to eat what your are offered. In fact, you will really hurt your host's feelings.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Jed: That may be true. How do you explain what Paul said about eating meat sacrificed to idols, in his letter to the Corinthians? How is it okay for the Christians in the Corinthian church to eat meat sacrificed to idols, but Christians in the 21st century can't eat Hilal food?
---Trish on 9/23/12

The difference between a Jewish Kosher blessing and a Muslim Sharia "blessing" is simple. Kosher food is offered up to the true living God Jehovah. Muslim food is offered to the false god Allah.
---Jed on 9/23/12

Cluny: Yes, it is true. KFC's food is Hilal. I know because I used to drive a friend home from work everyday. She is married to an Egyptian Muslim. She is a Christian who married him when she was not walking with the Lord.

Anyway, she is now walking with the Lord, and praying for his salvation. She shops at Hilal stores, and buys food from KFC.

My brother-in-law works for an American corporation in Saudi Arabia. He has no choice but to eat Hilal food. There is no other choice. He is a believer. Should he starve?

What would you say to my missionary friends who are brave enough to go to North Africa to reach the Arab Muslims there? Don't eat the food? Ridiculous.
---Trish on 9/23/12

Is what you're saying true? Remember, there is a lot of disinformation on the internet--to say nothing about baseless rumors. A friend sends me such tidbits from time to time. Minimal research shows these stories to be false.

The actual procedure of slaughtering animals (namely how it is killed) does not vary between sharia and kosher slaughtering. Only the prayers said at the time differ.

Regardless of the source of the meat and how it was slaughtered, when I bless it, it becomes Orthodox Christian food, and when I eat it, it turns into Orthodox Christian me.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

If a Christian refuses to eat Hilal food, simply because it is sanctified for Muslims, shouldn't they avoid all kosher food, because it is for Jews who obey the Law? Are we under Grace, or under the Law?

KFC owners are not Muslims. They are making sure that they can sell to their Muslim customers around the world.

Good grief. Paul addressed this when he told the Corinthians what to do about eating meat that was sacrificed to idols.

The world is full of protests: muslims, teachers, union workers, students, regular people for social reform, etc. Christians are to love everyone, but during a protest you have divided the people into three groups: one, the people who love you for what is worldly right, two, the people who hate your for what you believe, and the rest who don't care. Christians are not to protest anything especially anything having to do with the government for God has chosen the government leaders for a purpose and christians are to obey the government - good or bad for God is in complete control. Besides, who does protests glorify God or man?

What difference does it make if they kill chickens standing on their head or any other silly story. As Christians we are to give thanks or pray over everything we eat in Jesus Name and once santified by the Word of prayer it is fine to be eaten. The Bible tells us anyway when you eat with someone don't ask where the food came from accept it as it is 1 Corinthians 10:27,31,30,29,28. So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,do it all for the Glory of God. 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness,why am I denounced for something I thank God for? The only reason not to eat is if it offends a brother who knows where it came from verses 28 & 29.
